Wind will soon be blowing into the basin.

About 70 wind towners will be built, costing about 300-million dollars.  

The wind farm will be located on the J-B Whatley Ranch in Ector and Andrews counties.

American Shoreline Incoorporated based out of Corpus Christi will construct the farm, that will start in 2008, and will start operating in 2009.

Another company out of Chicago plans to develop a wind farm east of Notrees, and two other wind farm companies want to build two more farms in Odessa.
